GOJIRASAURUS QUAYI
"Quay County Godzilla Lizard"
Carpenter, 1997
Length: 5.5m (17ft)
Weight: 150-200kg (330-440lb.)
Location: New Mexico, USA
Era: Norian age, upper Triassic (210 million years ago)

Classification:
Dinosauria
Saurischia
Theropoda
Coelophysoidea

Notes:
Type specimen may be chimaera between raiusuchan material and material indistinguishable from Coelophysis bauri, putting its validity into question.

UPDATE JAN 15, 2013:
Completely redrawn. Wasn't particularly happy with the original drawing, it was done with no reference and I have perfected my technique a lot in the past year. Here's a link to the original drawing ([link]) in the Scraps.

I learned of this dinosaur from an old book I had. Great job on this guy and hopefully in the future more fossils for this dinosaur are found to confirm its genus.
Tell WDHGK that if he doesn't let me follow him I will make him the man how has been shot in the balls

Just curious: Is there any reasoning behind the numbers of all those Dinosaurs?
Green-Mamba's avatar
no, it's just the order i did them in. just me keeping track of how many i've done.

If it's not a chimaera, I'd doubt it would have feathers.

it's not entirely out of the question--i'm pretty open to the idea that feathery integument is a basal trait of dinosauria, perhaps even to avemetatarsalia. it's still quite possible that the fuzz on pterosaurs and the quills on ornithischian dinosaurs may be analogous to feathers on theropods, i wouldn't write it off so quickly.
